Tom Hiddleston has a slumber party, our first look at The Day of the Doctor, Bishop Gene Robinson says that Jesus must be so embarrassed by those who claim to be his followers
Matthew Morrison is fine with fans and the media questioning his sexuality. “I know my own truth, I’m a very happy heterosexual man,” Morrison said. “But like I said in that quote, I have a lot of gay friends and I’m a big supporter of gay rights and gay marriage. This is America, this is the land of freedom and opportunity and I think it’s kind of crazy that a loving or committed gay or lesbian couple can’t marry just because they’re different.”
Colorado College has riled some folks up by allowing “Queer” as an option under “Gender” on their job applications. While many are calling it a slur, the college says that it’s actually trying to be more opening and welcoming. The school is aware that some find it offensive, but “Others have reclaimed it and are comfortable using it to describe themselves.” Personally, I’ve always found “queer” to be an empowering word, but recognize it doesn’t travel well across age groups and some geographies.
Thor: The Dark World is going to win the box office with around $83 million, eclipsing the $65 million opener of its predecessor. Ender’s Game, meanwhile, plummeted to around $10 million, a 62% drop from the opening weekend, and not what you want to launch a franchise with.
In the wee hours of the morning Saturday, the House in Hawaii passed the marriage equality bill 30-19, sending it back to the Senate to approve the changes, which is expected to happen easily on Tuesday, making it the 16th equality state once Governor Abercrombie signs the bill. We’re on a roll, folks.
Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens has been cast in the role of Lancelot in Night at the Museum 3. As the film takes place in London, this is a big role
As Batman vs. Superman rumors are almost as common as Star Wars rumors these days, we’ve heard about the possibility of Wonder Woman, and now Adam Driver is supposedly testing the role of an older Robin, most likely as Nightwing.
While five more episodes seems like a half-hearted endorsement, Sean Saves the World has added that many, putting the initial season at 18 episodes to prove it’s worthy of being renewed. I had to delete it from my TiVo, I just couldn’t take it. Is anyone still watching?
The first lawsuit in New Jersey against the law shielding minors from reparative therapy has been tossed, with the judge ruling that the state has an interest in regulating medical treatments and therefore the law was constitutional.
You may have enjoyed Hunting Season when Logo aired it. It had a fun vibe, sexy stars and a lot of skin. The cast and writer have decided to go the Kickstarter route to do a second season, and with a big goal of $150,000 need all the help they can get.
Tom Cruise is admitting that Scientology played a role in his divorce from Katie Holmes, and that his daughter Suri is no longer involved in the religion. But most controversially, he compares the job of being a multi-millionaire actor to being a solider in Afghanistan. “That’s what it feels like. And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal. There is difficult physical stamina and preparation. Sometimes I’ve spent months, a year, and sometimes two years preparing for a single film. A sprinter for the Olympics, they only have to run two races a day. When I’m shooting, I could potentially have to run 30, 40 races a day, day after day.” Honestly, Tom, I think I speak for the entire world when I say go eff yourself.
Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin is doubling down on not processing benefits for same-sex spouses, despite orders from the Pentagon to do so. She says that no facility that is run by state employees will process the benefits, regardless of them being federal benefits, and soldiers will have to travel to a federal facility or one of the four National Guard facilities operated by the federal government.
Jennifer Lawrence is a quote machine, and most of them are just gold. There’s a whole list of them this week, but my personal favorite is when she was asked if Liam Hemsworth or Josh Hutcherson was a better kisser. “How about we have them kiss each other and let them decide?”
Cher gave a killer interview about Twitter, sex appeal, Miley Cyrus, and her love affair with the gays. “Gay guys like a certain kind of woman. They like a flamboyant woman that’s broken. They like a balls-to-the-wall woman, motherly but not; sexual but not. Gay guys are like this: they either love you or they don’t even know you’re on the planet. Once you have them, you have them.” And she doesn’t think the lesbians are nearly as fond of her. “Not in the same degree. I think my gay boys, that’s a big part of my world.” You really have to click through to read the story about her, Sonny, Salvador Dali, and the vibrator.
In August, a Japanese game show challenged a straight male porn star, who claimed to have so much “climax control” no one could make him orgasm if he didn’t want to receive a blow job on air from a gay bar owner. Who won the challenge? And why isn’t American television this fun?
The organizers of Eurovision have challenged the Russian government to answer concerns about what would happen if Russia won the competition and then became the host the following year, considering the high levels of campy and outright gay content in the show. “We decided to make that step because several bigger countries have expressed concerns about safety.”
Bishop Gene Robinson says that “Jesus must just hold his head in his hands with embarrassment at being associated with people who claim to be his followers.”
